This is my first time posting something on here. so this is the thing, i was wondering How do you know what you are Pregnant???? i have asked people, and i get different things i know that the best thing is to get a test or something but is there like another way that you can know without taking any test or missing your monthly cycle. i heard that when you are pregnant you just know, you feel it but i don't quite get that. I know that this sounds kind of weird but i just kind of curious to know how women know that they are pregnant???

Not sure as I haven't been pregnant but other signs include a metallic taste in mouth, morning sickness and tiredness. A test is the only way to know for sure!

hi! to be sure that you're pregnant you really have to take pregnancy test. because if it's only a hint on your part, you'll get confused. also, if you have a regular period and you suddenly missed one, you better go on and test yourself.

Well you will have to observe changes in yourself, like delayed menstruation, fatigue, morning sickness, backache, headache, frequent urination, darkening of and food cravings, but take note these are just probable signs and symptoms of pregnancy. There are women who experience those just because they want to be pregnant so these could manifest on them even they're not. So you still have to undergo pregnancy test and ultrasound as they are more reliable.
